24 Hours of LeMons Texas: The Cars of Houston Gator-O-Rama!

24 Hours of LeMons: Texas: Houston

[Update: Your links/websites are coming in fastish and semi-furiously. Keep 'em coming] Can I get a yeeha, y’all? The sub-grassroots motorsports revival known as the 24 Hours of LeMons is heading back to Texas in just over one month’s time. Fenruary 28 — March 1, 2009 to be precise. And as LeMons features nothing but $500 beaters coping with hilarious dilemmas like metal fatigue, the date’s the only precise thing about it. The escaped (but largely harmless) mental patients behind the citrus curtain are calling it Houston Gator-O-Rama. Probably has something to do with the alligator living in MIR’s infield. The long and the short of it that like last time, down below we got the names and cars of all 96 whack job teams groups of heroic men and women that will be racing for the nickels.  To envoke none other than Tanner Foust, yes they really are racing for $1,500 in nickels. 

Even with our half-assed incomplete definitive and authoritarian list, many questions remain. Such as: will the 1972 Opel GT pit maneuver the 1972 MGB-GT? Or will it be vice-versa? Which is the more absurd entry, an Eagle Talon or a Mitsu 3000GT? And what the hell is a “Bonnelinabird?” Which Mustang will have the biggest cheater motor? Which of the five E30s will cook their electronics the quickest? How many penalties will Team Unintended Acceleration’s Audi 90 collect this time (you’ll be putting the starter in this time boys)? How many penalty laps (total) will the mega-cheater RX-7s get hammered for by me and Judge Martin during BS inspection? What sorta Texan buys an Alfa Romea (a Milano, no less)? And of course, who gets to eat the pig’s feet, as the Sharks ain’t making it? You can find out the answers to all these (and more!) by either getting off your pre-diabetic ass and coming down to somewhere near Houston or stuffing your piehole with Ruffles and reading our coverage. Please note: for some pinner reason LeMon HQ forgot to include the team websites. If you are part of a Texas team and would like your 15 nanoseconds of prefame, please send us the links to your sites. Though the possibility does exist that no team in Texas can figure out this here website thing.
